Psychology of Aging Weekly Notes Intelligence Charles Spearman and “g” 1863-1945: English psychologist influence by Francis Galton and pioneer in factor analysis Studied for PhD with Wilhelm Wundt Developed a two factor model to explain the variation of performance of school children on cognitive and mental tasks “g”: general intelligence factor “s”: stands for variance, attributed to a specific factor measured by mental test Failed to account for broader groups of activities such as memory, visual-spatial, etc. Included the sum of the total scores would give the IQ, but there were also ‘splinter skills’ that were not accounted for L.L. Thurstone Created a test that measures verbal meaning (synonyms), spatial relations (pick rotated figures), inductive reasoning (next number or letter in sequence), number or arithmetic (add a series of numbers), word fluency (words beginning with a give letter) Robert Sternberg Created the components of intelligence; contextual, experiential, and information processing Contextual: cultures define intelligence differently (like how there’s 40 different types of ice in Alaska that are necessary to know but in Seattle, WA it’s unnecessary), can vary across historical times and also age Experiential: degree of familiarity with a task (novel vs learned, like a 16 year old driving vs a 35 year old) Information Processing: identification of a problem, strategies used to solve it, efficiency of problem solving
